[NTG-context] What does --errors and --noconsole do?

Dear List,

I was reading workflow-mkiv
<http://www.pragma-ade.nl/general/manuals/workflows-mkiv.pdf> and have
found the '--errors' and '--noconsole' arguments which seemed quite helpful
since, according to the documentation, "show errors at the end of a run"
and "disables logging to the console" while "error reporting mentioned in
the previous section will never be silenced". But when I run 'context
--errors' for the following document


the message

    setup           > error in line 1, namespace 'pagenumbering', key

still lies in the middle of a bunch of messages and is not shown in the
end. When I add '--noconsole' to the arguments, the error disappears along
with all the other messages.

So is there any combination of arguments that can let context only display
what matters to the user?

Thanks in advance.
